He has a home on the Big Island. The stated reason for his resignation as SMU head coach is “personal reasons.” From most I’ve read and heard, it sounds like he needs a break, for now.
What about the future?
Norm Chow isn’t going to coach UH football forever (and his tenure could end quickly if the losing continues) and at 61, Jones is several years younger than Chow.
Some of Jones’ friends say he’s ready to roll right now. And many fans have been clamoring for change since early in Chow’s first season.
Jones led UH football to unprecedented heights, but not without controversy. Just about everyone seems to have a strong opinion one way or the other about him.
